An ideal small loop hike from Jackson Lake Lodge. Just uphill from the trailhead (0.2 mile), you come to a junction with a trail heading south toward Emma Matilda Lake. Go left (north) and start a gradual climb up to the top of Grand View Point. Just before you reach Grand View Point, you level off at a high point that could be confused with the real thing. Walk slightly farther down the trail for the real Grand View Point. From the top of 7,586-foot Grand View Point, you get the view you expected, an outstanding look at Mount Moran and the rest of the mighty Teton Range off to the west, although this is partially obscured by trees. To our surprise, you also get a terrific sweeping vista of Two Ocean Lake and the lush meadows surrounding this huge mountain lake.

Great early morning hike for the family. It is a steady climb - but worth it for the views at the top.

This is a great morning hike as the sun is shining its first rays on the East-facing Teton range. I had the trail and the summit all to myself when I hiked on a weekday in the fall. I would like to repeat the hike in time to see the sunrise. The name of the hike as listed on the maps is "Grandview Point."
